Across the country Small Business Saturday is celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving as a way to encourage support of small, local businesses. In 2010 American Express launched Small Business Saturday, and in 2011 it became a day officially recognized by the US Senate. By 2013 more than 1,450 Neighborhood Champions signed up to rally their communities, and last year shoppers supported their neighborhood businesses like never before with more than $14.3 billion spent at small, independent businesses – in just one day.
Thank you for a great Small Business Saturday this year! Stay tuned for next year's Small Business Saturday!
